Why Chiropractic? Savannah Chiropractor Directory Chiropractic Boosts Immunity This is what Savannah Chiropractors do?
A better way to health is to make sick people well, the natural way. Chiropractic emphasizes body engineering, postural stability, vertebrae adjustment and dynamic, self-regulating, control systems. It is spectacularly successful and decidedly economical. Discontent over present day medical care has become so decided, that it has triggered a fast growing switch to chiropractic by millions upon millions of people worldwide. The powerful and paranoid American Medical Association has long struggled, unsuccessfully, to erase chiropractic altogether, even to the point in Hawaii of making it so that a physician must be the primary, with referral rights, in an automobile accident. More and more Americans are learning that chiropractic, because of consistent and successful clinical results being achieved, are a welcome alternative to the drugs or surgery approach to "healing". With the development of newer knowledge about the nervous system, especially in cybernetics, the scientific implications of chiropractic has broadened immensely. We are flabby, overweight, and have lots of dental caries, fluoridation notwithstanding. Our gastrointestinal system operates like a sputtering gas engine. We can't sleep and we can't get going when we are awake without coffee or some other stimulant. We have neuroses and high blood pressure. Neither our hearts nor our heads last as long as they should. Coronary disease, at the peak of life, has hit epidemic proportions. Suicide is one of the leading causes of death (fourth between the ages of 15 and 44), and we suffer from a myriad of the diseases of civilization. Isn't it strange that all of this illness, sickness and disease exist in the U.S., where American Medical Science supposedly leads the world?

Today, American hospitals are crowed, sometimes beyond capacity and a seriously ill person frequently must wait even weeks for a bed. When you get sick in America, your chances of getting well quickly, without excessive loss of time, money or your life, is questionable. It's like playing Russian Roulette to be medically treated by many of the medical doctors - all members of the American Medical profession. People no longer place unlimited faith in any one doctor or any one healing approach, especially medical. The drug approach is producing new diseases from harmful side effects of many of the drugs. Just look at the Thalidomide horror of the 50's and the Vioxx horror recently, for openers. Harmful side effects from drugs are becoming routine and result from the injudicious use of drugs by medical doctors. Today, physicians prescribe thoughtlessly, indiscriminately and often needlessly, the use of radiation, chemotherapy, antibiotics, steroids, tranquilizers and blood transfusions. It's a small wonder that 20 to 25 percent of our population are patients in hospitals daily. If medical doctors continue to interfere with Mother Nature, the American Public must pay the penalty. It's no secret that certain drugs, surgical procedures, and other forms of therapy can, even when properly employed, create unfavorable, often harassing, and many times, fatal sideeffects. Unhappily, it is true that drugs are frequently administered or other procedures performed, apparently without due regard for their disquieting and sometimes dangerous potentialities. Unfortunately, illnesses and deaths caused by drugs are not among the reportable diseases. The American Medical Community is under attack by all segments of our society for its failure to provide quality health care. American medicine stands on the brink of chaos. Even treating routine illnesses is inferior in quality, not to mention the utterly hopeless disinterest by medical doctors in disease prevention. The horrendous myth that drugs and surgery should treat all diseases known to mankind is asinine. American Medical Science seems to be on another planet in a different galaxy scientificating for robots. It is clear that science certainly has not discovered how to maintain the human body in a happy condition on planet Earth. So-called minor diseases, which are not being treated successfully, disable millions upon millions of our people and yet other natural types of therapy could help these victims of incompetency. The failure of orthodox medicine has created a need and climate for a change. Many millions of Americans are turning to doctors using natural healing techniques and chiropractors are realizing a remarkable success story in their healing art. Take back pain for example - a medical doctor treats a person with back pain by placing him in traction in a hospital for weeks or longer. With a chiropractor, the ordeal takes a few days. Chiropractors offer preventive maintenance. Not only does he treat the specific ailment, he recognizes the stresses and strains of our daily activity that are throwing our bodies out of balance. Prolonged over a period of time, this can cause functional displacement of the spine and other structures. Disturbing the function of important nerve pathways. A chiropractor studies the human body the way an engineer looks at an intricate piece of machinery. In both cases, the object is not to add or subtract, if possible, but rather to adjust the machine in ways to provide for its most efficient operation. So, the chiropractic approach can often prevent sickness. Functional disturbances, caused by nerve irritations can be detected long before definite symptoms develop. Chiropractic is successful because it recognizes that disease exists in the patient, not in the test tube. Sickness, illness and disease are the result of some departure from normal function of the body. Pain is caused by irritation and injury of the spinal nerves, which extend to all parts of the body. When a medical doctor treats pain, he resorts to the medical procedures of the chemical approach - injection of drugs, mainly morphine and its derivative. When a chiropractor produces relief from pain, the patient knows that the relief experienced is due to the removal of the cause, not by drugs. So, the chiropractor, by his distinctive method of diagnosis and analysis, is able to trace the pain to the site of the involved spinal nerve roots. It is this analysis of the mechanical faults of the area, which reveal the cause of the nerve injury. By using manipulative techniques, he is

able to correct the cause of the impairment and restore normal function to the spinal nerve roots and spinal nerves. When this is done, health is restored. Correct diagnosis of disease by the medical community is extremely uncertain, usually very unreliable, and unsatisfactory. Why? Because most physicians treat symptoms, mistaking effects for causes. Most attacks of disease of any and all kinds get well, whether treated or not, if they have not passed from functional to organic. They come and are gone in a few days, without the aid of a physician. Natural comfort usually returns to normalcy when accumulated toxins in the blood fall below the body tolerance level. There was no cure! Nerve energy returns to normal when the causes of the loss of vitality are discovered and removed. If your body rebels, stop your loss of vitality activities, stop eating, and rest and relax comfortably until nerve energy is restored to normal. Even consider a fasting for a while. So-called "cures" by the medical community are a delusion. Learn what disease really is and give up the ingrained, ridiculous notions concerning cures. Remember, the word patient is a euphemism for the word customer, and the success of any business depends upon repeat customers.
Chiropractic Boosts Immunity
The nervous system and immune system are hardwired and work together to create optimal responses for the body to adapt and heal appropriately. Neural dysfunctions due to spinal misalignments are stressful to the body and cause abnormal changes that lead to a poorly coordinated immune response. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to boost the coordinated responses of the nervous system and immune system. The autonomic nervous system is hardwired into the lymphoid organs such as the spleen, thymus, lymph nodes, and bone marrow that produce the body's immune response. Growing evidence is showing that immune function is regulated in part by the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system. Subluxation is the term for misalignments of the spine that cause compression and irritation of nerve pathways affecting organ systems of the body. Subluxations are an example of physical nerve stress that affects neuronal control. According to researchers, such stressful conditions lead to altered measures of immune function & increased susceptibility to a variety of diseases. Inflammatory based disease is influenced by both the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems. Nerve stimulation directly affects the growth and function of inflammatory cells. Researchers found that dysfunction in this pathway results in the development of various inflammatory syndromes such as rheumatoid arthritis and behavioral syndromes such as depression. Additionally, this dysfunctional neuro-endo-immune response plays a significant role in immune-compromised conditions such as chronic infections and cancer. Wellness based chiropractors analyze the spine for subluxations and give corrective adjustments to reduce the stress on the nervous system. A 1992 research group found that when a thoracic adjustment was applied to a subluxated area the white blood cell (neutrophil) count collected rose significantly. In 1975, Ronald Pero, Ph.D., chief of cancer prevention research at New York's Preventive Medicine Institute and professor in Environmental Health at New York University, began researching the most scientifically valid ways to estimate individual susceptibility to various chronic diseases. He has conducted a tremendous amount of research in this area that includes over 160 published reports in peer reviewed journals. Pero and his colleagues discovered that various DNA-repairing enzymes could be significantly altered following exposure to carcinogenic chemicals. He found strong evidence that an individual's susceptibility to cancer could be determined by these enzymes. Lack of those enzymes, Pero said, 'definitely limits not only your lifespan, but also your ability to resist serious disease consequences.' Pero was fascinated by the relationship cancer-inducing agents had on the endocrine system. Since the nervous system regulates hormone balance, he hypothesized that the nervous system had to also have a strong influence on one's susceptibility to cancer.

To support this argument he found a substantial amount of literature linking various kinds of spinal cord injuries and cancer. Pero found that these injuries led to a very high rate of lymphomas and lymphatic leukemias. This understanding led Pero to consider Chiropractic care as a means of reducing the risk of immune breakdown and disease. Pero's team measured 107 individuals who had received long-term Chiropractic care. The chiropractic patients were shown to have a 200% greater immune competence than people who had not received chiropractic care, and a 400% greater immune competence than people with cancer or serious diseases. Interestingly, Pero found no decline with the various age groups in the study demonstrating that the DNA repairing enzymes were just as present in long-term chiropractic senior groups as they were in the younger groups. Pero concluded, 'Chiropractic may optimize whatever genetic abilities you have so that you can fully resist serious disease...I have never seen a group other than this show a 200% increase over normal patients.' http://www.discoverchiropracticnow....
